                                                           PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

         Unfortunately, we continue to see violence and death, whether it be aimed at LEOs or civilians, many times both. We have seen that cowards will attack people just because they have different beliefs.  The venues have varied as has the methods of attacks. Remember your tactics and training.  Be suspicious and alert.  Look around, evaluate places before entering, if you “see something, say something”.  If you are able to legally carry a firearm, I recommend you do so.  It may save your life or a loved one's life.  If you decide to carry a firearm, please be familiar with it and practice often.           

            We have a few events forthcoming, this month's meeting on the Haverstraw Elks' Deck.  Always fun and someone will be lucky and win the 50/50. Buy a ticket it may be you.  July 13th, will be our trip to Boulders Stadium to root for the home team against the Quebec Capitales. 

            Not to wish the summer away, but next thing you'll know it will be time for the Golf Outing, September 18th at The Phillip J. Rotella Golf Course followed by food, raffles, awards and prizes at The Fireside Steak Pub. Sign up to play, sponsor a hole and/or join us for dinner. 

            Please make an effort to thank our past and current armed forces and first responders when you see them.  A small expression of gratitude goes a long way and can change someone's day for the better.  

            I wish everyone a fun and safe summer.       


                                                                                                                        Fraternally yours,  

                                                                                                                                    Mark V. Murphy
